One of the most debated Boston Bruins' players continues to be starting goalie Tuukka Rask. 

Some people believe that the Bruins would actually be better off with Jaroslav Halak as a full time starter while others believe Rask is the true backbone of the team. 

It's a debate that will rage on forever regardless of the fact that Rask has a Vezina Trophy along with some stellar career numbers. 

The Bruins' captain however doesn't even want to hear any of the anti-Rask talk at all. 


Zdeno Chara took to Instagram to set the record straight after he was asked once again about Rask. 

"The other day I've been asked if I think Tuukka can get us to win another Championship.This season Tuukka ranks first in goals against average among all goalies with more than 15 games played. 2.22 goals against average.With his excellent performances he helped our team to be leader in points around the NHL.So there is your answerTuukka is "Boston Wall""

When it comes to the Bruins Stanley Cup losses in 2013 and 2019, the finger is largely pointed at Rask, however the goalie has been a playoff performer whether people want to accept it or not. The goalie has a 50-39 career playoff record with a 2.19 goals against average and .927 save percentage.
